Mo's Art; artwork by Moses E Hoskins
Moses E. Hoskins was born in 1953 in Iowa where he spent his youth and some time as an adult. He was educated in public schools and attended a few colleges in the Midwest before attaining a BFA later on in 1981 in what could be construed as a last ditch effort at Formal Education from the University of Iowa School of Art and Art History at Iowa City.
As a visual fine artist, Hoskins' roots were in figurative rendering but he has worked abstractly since the mid 80’s. Residing in New York City since 1988, he continues to exhibit in a variety of venues. He exhibited regularly with OK Harris in NYC from 2000 until the gallery's noteworthy downtown run of 45 years in SoHo came to an end in 2014.
Hoskins is a recipient of multiple grants for support of his continuing exploration in painting, drawing and collage media from the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation and also from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation - and he is a Yaddo guest artist...
Now his work is included in White Columns' Artist Registry, New York. / His paintings can be seen at Robischon Gallery, Denver.
